Rather controversially, the author claims that Russell's logical atomism does not involve ontological reduction to known epistemic entities, but retains the structures (for example, logical forms) given by the laws of the traditional ontological framework (just as Maxwell's equations for electromagnetic waves in the aether are retained by Einstein's no aether-theory of relativity).
